Stef Van Vynckt

Stef Van Vynckt is a Belgian harpist specializing in contemporary classical music. He has worked closely with leading contemporary composers to further expand the harp repertoire in works that showcase both the delicate side of the harp we are accustomed to, as well as the lesser explored and at times abrasive possibilities that the instrument can possess. Amongst the many collaborations he has been involved in in recent years, he has worked with, amongst others, Dai Fujikura, Leilehua Lanzilotti, Maja Bosnic, Jason Eckardt and Baldwin Giang. Stef is regularly invited to perform with leading ensembles within the contemporary music field. In 2023 he joined Ensemble Modern in the premiere of Blühen, an opera by Vito Zuraj. He performed at several festivals and venues such as Classical:NEXT 2024 (DE), cresc… Biennale für aktuelle Musik (DE), Klarafestival Young artists in the city (BE), Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity (CA), Korzo (NL), Muziektheater Transparant Antwerp (BE), Ha Concerts Ghent (BE), BOS!
